Lorisian Food Intolerance Tets analyse your blood sample for food specific IgG antibody reactions. You will discover the foods you are reacting to which should then be eliminated from your diet.

Although reactions to foods may not be life threatening, they can make the sufferer feel extremely unwell and may have an impact on your work and social life. Intolerance to a particular food will not always cause symptoms immediately, ogten taking from a few hours to a few days to show up.

An Explanation of Food Intolerance

What is the difference between allergy and intolerance

The term ‘food intolerance’ and ‘food allergy’ are often confused and are two very different things.

Genuine food allergy is relatively rare.  Only about 2% of the adult population are affected.  A food allergy is a swift response by the body’s immune system to a specific food.  In this type of reaction, the body’s immune system mistakes a food for an ‘invader’ which often results in a rapid allergic reaction often within minutes, but generally within a maximum of two hours.  This type of allergic reaction is commonly associated reactions to peanuts, tree nuts, milk, eggs and seafood.

Food intolerance is quite different to food allergy and whilst the symptoms can impact the person’s quality of life they are not life threatening.  Food intolerances are much more common than food allergies.

When foods and drinks are digested the proteins within them are broken down into smaller fragments for easy absorption into the body.  Larger fragments can pass through without breaking down, and sometimes the body reacts by attacking them using antibodies called Immunoglobulin G’s (IgG).

A recent study* has shown that those who eliminated trigger foods based on food-specific IgG test results had reductions in weight, body mass index, waist and hip circumference and improvements in all indicators of quality of life that were measured. The quality of life indicators included physical and emotional wellbeing, mental health, social life, pain levels and vitality.

Difficult to self-diagnose Caused by raised IgE antibody
Symptoms can clear after avoidance (3-6 months) Lifelong
